Around The World Series: Japan (Kiehls Aromatic Blends Nashi Blossom & Pink Grapefruit Fragrance)

By  |  170 Comments


Kiehls new Aromatic Blends Collection includes four fragrances: Orange Leaf & Lychee, Fig Leaf & Sage, Vanilla & Cedarwood, and Nashi Blossom & Pink Grapefruit. The Aromatic Blends collection has formulated these fragrances to be a truer rendition of the ingredients involved, using high quality key ingredients to get a scent that really reflects the areas they are inspired by. 
For the release of these fragrances, I’ve teamed up with Kiehls to bring you four looks inspired by the fragrances themselves and the areas around the world they were inspired from.

Orange Leaf & Lychee: Morocco
Fig Leaf & Sage: Provence
Vanilla & Cedarwood- Uganda
Nashi Blossom & Pink Grapefruit- Japan

Each scent comes in three forms- A fragrance, body wash, and body lotion.

The final look in this miniseries is my favorite! It’s inspired by the Nashi Blossom & Pink Grapefruit Scent, and the location Japan. This fragrance is an interesting combination of fruity and floral. The fragrance itself has more of that bittersweet element that grapefruit has, and the lotion is more of a sweet fruity/floral mix. I prefer the lotion’s fragrance :)

The look is inspired by Geisha looks I found while searching on Google. I didn’t want to do a traditional Geisha look, but I noticed in most of the photos I saw, there was a lot of reds and whites and black shades. and a lot of liner. I had a ton of fun creating this look, I hope you enjoy :)

    This is stunning! You are an amazing artist! I always wondered when I have looked at red shadow, “how the heck can you use red eyeshadow without looking ridiculous??”  Apparently Leesha knows how!  Although on my computer it looks more like a fuschia than red. Is that because of the expert blending with the black and white added, or just because I’m viewing it on a monitor v. in person?

    I don’t think I could pull this off for picking the kids up at school (as much as I’d like to!), but even though I probably wouldn’t feel completely comfortable copying it exactly as it is, it still gives me lots of great tips.  And I’m going to try the paper trick with my blush. (Wearing blush is a challenge for me, and I almost never wear it, but have been told by many makeup artists that I really should.)
